Vermentino di Gallura Superiore DOCG
- Decanter World Wine Award's Silver Medal, 2016 Lupus in Fabula, published in Decanter, June 2017
WINE PROFILE / TASTING NOTES
Straw-yellow color with greenish reflections. Elegant and refined bouquet, ample long-lasting, floral and sweet fruit with an evident mineral note, hints of black cherry, wild pear and Mediterranean bush. Ample and rich taste with good acidic balance. Good structure, fruity aftertaste, mineral rich and persistent.
The grapes are pressed without prior destemming. After that the must is clarified through settling and it ferments at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks preserving the natural flavor and intensity of the typical fruit from this region.
FOOD AND WINE PAIRING
Harmoniously accompanies any dish made with fish or white meat. Also, very good with Pecorino or other strong cheese. Serve at 10° C / 50° F.
After fermentation, the wine is aged on the lees for eight months.
